Mid-century Modern Apartment Modernized by Safae Interior Design

This pre-WWII apartment in New York was converted to a mid-century modern decor by Safae Interior Design. The mid-century modern decor style takes its cue from the 1950s and 1960s. Mid-century modern emphasizes “form follows function.” It features rounded shapes, peg legs, and pendant lights.

Displaying mid-century modern style, the living room has an L-shaped sofa, two traditional style chairs with 1960s style print upholstery, and two nesting 1960s style oval coffee tables. The kitchen has mid-century modern style chairs and bar stools with curved wood seats and backs. Over the island is a three pendant lamp combination. Another pendant lamp hangs over the table in the breakfast nook. The L-shaped bench in the breakfast nook has the curved lines of mid-century modern style decor. The dining room is at the end of the living room and features a hanging lamp. The chairs in the dining room have the peg legs of mid-century modern decor. The family room has a modern L-shaped sofa, wood floor, and pendant lamp. A home office off of the living room has a mid-century modern office chair with an ottoman. The powder room has blue op-art tile wall and a modern sink with a marble countertop. The master bedroom features a modern bed and nightstand with an op-art print on the wall. The walk-in closet highlights a 1960s style lipstick print in several areas.
